out across america that there are a few things that they need -- americans need to be thinking about when it comes to health care. that if they like their plan that they have now that they can keep it. that things are only going to get better when we can reform health care insurance. for example, right now, an insurance company can drop you if you have a preexisting condition. under the new health care insurance reform bill that we will pass by the end of this year you will no longer be able to be dropped if you have a preexisting condition. we'll make sure, for example, women who end up paying higher premiums because of our gender, that will no longer be allowed. the annual cap and lifetime cap that insurance companies put on health insurance policies will be prohibited. so insurance coverage will get better for people who have it now. the people that don't have it now will be able to be covered and, generally, if we include a public option which i am hopeful that we do, we'll make sure that we have a public option that will help bring down the costs by making the private plans more

think america has got an appetite that is dwindling away when it comes to the heir apparent. we want some real folks in there, number one, who wants the job. there's no entitlement. there's a real ernest effort to show they want to represent the people. an election in massachusetts would probably be the right way to go. i think the legislators have got their pulse on it. if they really wanted to change it -- to change it just for health care i think is the wrong thing to do. look, health care in this country is going to get passed one a or another because it's going to be good for the country. not because senator kennedy was behind it. obviously he was a powerful force, an advocate for decades. everybody knows that. it might motivate people to work harder, pay attention. this is going to get passed because it's good for the country, not because a senator may have worked on it or wanted it. >> we've only got 30 seconds. where else in terms of policy or important political dynamics do you think senator kennedy will be missed. health care is an obvious one. >> i'm going to remember him,
